A few hours later–#23

It’s amazing how quickly I can arrive at a destination once I have a semblance of an idea of where I’m going! To see two previous versions of this painting click on the ← above the title of this post.

All this one needs is a wire hanger and a frame and we’re ready for our next-to-last art fair for this year. These won’t be our last exhibit opportunities–if the judging goes my way–so stay close for future announcements!

Sky Pads 23 finished, photo taken in good light with a real camera (I love my phone, but…)

    Wow! You don’t hang around. I also find that camera phones are not all they are cracked up to be.

      The only thing I really love about phones is that I can upload to the net directly from the phone. Which by definition means the photo isn’t very important as an accurate representation of anything. No matter how good my SLR camera is, I almost always tweak something in Photoshop. Because…I care! “People say” that the iPhoneX has an excellent camera, but since I will never spring that much cash for an electronic device with such a short projected lifetime I guess I will never know for sure. Not knowing doesn’t bother me a lot LOL!

    This one looks like the pads are changing color for fall. Alli, was that the intent? I’ve really enjoyed all the sky pads, but I think this one is my favorite. 🙂

    Pretty much everything about every painting in this series is unintentional. That sounds crazy, but it’s true. I start with a background color combination that I like, for maybe some reason or no reason at all. What comes out of the paint pour mix can vary widely even when the same colors are used. It depends on how they blended on the canvas. Once the background is dry the challenge becomes finding colors that will work with it, which means mostly that the colors compliment one another but you can still see the foreground over the background, even if the background turns out to be rather dark. I often have to leave the painting sitting up against a wall for days, or sometimes weeks, before the appropriate color combination occurs to me. Once I have the solution I can pretty much whip through getting the top layers done. So while I agree with you that the last two paintings are trending toward fall I have to admit that it was not exactly on purpose. I also love the colors of this latest one!
